Pretty, pink . . . stun guns


I suppose the idea behind pink stun guns is that pink is an innocuous color and therefore, not threatening. You take your would-be attacker by surprise. InventorSpot shows us three different stun gun models: one that looks like a pink electric razor, one that's shaped like a tampon (uh, why?), and one that's shaped like a seal and hangs on a keychain for dangling on your purse strap or cell phone.


One problem? You might not be able to ward off your attacker simply by aiming your tampon stun gun at him and yelling "Back off!" You'd have to be quick and make your get-away while he's laughing his face off.

The pink seal stun gun, by the way, isn't a real weapon - you wouldn't want to have it as your only defense if approached in a dark alley. It's from one of our favorite accessories stores, Strapya (for $15), and is meant to be used to mildly zap inappropriate businessmen who can't keep their hands to themselves on the subway. The pink Taser C2 (shown at top) is a real stun gun, available at Amazonfor $350.
